Spaghetti AFRAID-O with White Carrot Phalanges
Are you wondering what to serve for dinner on HALLOWEEN night? Something delicious and nutritious to counter-balance all that candy? SCARE your family with Spaghetti AFRAID-O!
It is a downright DISTURBING dish where alfredo and marinara sauces depict DEATH or at the very least, some SEVERE INJURY as FINGER BONES are MANGLED among BLACK bean spaghetti.
The idea for this dish came to me in a NIGHTMARE, it is the second in a series of three original FRIGHTFULLY fun and flavorful BLACK bean spaghetti recipes developed for my friends at Explore Cuisine.
The challenge was to create three HORRIFYING recipes. They needed to be GORY yes, but also DEVILISHLY delicious. This one is organic, meatless, gluten-free, and lower-carb too.
Spaghetti AFRAID-O Recipe
White Carrot Phalanges
Peel 8 white carrots then carve with small knife into finger-bone shape. Steam until al dente. Set aside.
Black Bean Spaghetti with AFRAID-O Sauce
- 1 box Explore Cuisine black bean spaghetti – cooked, drained
- 1 jar of organic alfredo sauce (can choose gluten-free)
- 1 jar of organic marinara sauce (choose one that is more blood red in color, rather than orange)
- fresh basil
Heat the sauces in separate saucepans over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
Place warm Explore Cuisine black bean spaghetti in the center of four serving plates.
Ladle alfredo sauce over the center of the spaghetti, allowing black spaghetti to show around the edges.
Arrange carrot phalanges haphazardly over the sauce.
SPLATTER marinara sauce over the entire dish, in a GRUESOME manner. Smear “blood” on the bones.
Garnish with basil, because even GHASTLY meals need a pretty garnish.
(There will be extra sauce left over).
A phalange makes a good knife-rest.
Serve with a nice glass of Chianti.
